transportation to education, to preserving the capabilities of our national guard. while each governor has his or her own unique circumstances, we all have to facilitate job growth, improve schools, and be financially responsible. as much as we do in our states, our economies are tightly linked to the national economy, and as a result, our state's prosperity, the prosperity of our citizen depends in no small measure on the ability of all public servants in washington to come together on a path forward. uncertainty here in federal support hurts both our economies and the federal budget, and the implications are incredibly important. governors have been working with the president, the vice president, and congressional leadership to find solutions to help put our country back on firm financial footing. one of the largest elements of the uncertainty concerned elements of the fiscal cliff that were either postponed or taken out of the reason -- recent relief act of 2012 as the only postponed reducing grants to states. intimate reform was not addressed, and no action was taken regarding the federal

advisory commission, comprised of experts in mental health, education, law enforcement, and first response. we may never know what motivated the events at sandy hook elementary, but that won't stop us from working to prevent future tragedy. over the coming months, the commission will come together to make specific, actionable recommendations in the areas of school safety, mental health services, and gun violence prevention. this session, i know there will be others that take action on these issues, and i applaud those efforts. the more resources we can bring to bear on this issue, the better. working together we can and will affect real change. there are some things we know already. we know that we must find ways to better respond to those with mental health needs. as a society, we have an obligation to take action in a meaningful way when a person seeks our help or demonstrates a need for it. we must balance our respect for individual rights with our obligation to provide for the greater public safety. and when it comes to preventing future acts of violence in our schools, let me say this

sharply. in education too throughout the 90s several states were spending much more of their state budgets on corrections and prison building than they were on higher education. california and texas are two states doing just that. why do we have so many prisoners? one could say there was in the late 7s a rise in violent crime and a series of laws that initially had been passed in response to that but what doesn't make sense if you look at the chart you will see incarceration rates were rising at such a high amount even as violent crime, actually diminishing. when i talk about an addiction to incarceration and talk about it in the context not just of traditional crime and criminal justice but also in the area of education. for those of you in public schools, you know that public schools around country have become increasingly criminalize. the simple principle of this venereal or behavior problems now can result in an arrest and entry to the juvenile justice system. immigration for lack of federal immigration solution, we have increasingly relied on enforcement and the tension and a lot of t

members and the department of education four times a year. the story on abc2 news of school buses running red lights prompted the baltimore city council to step in. right now, the school system operates some of its own buses but employs contractors. currently, those contractors are not required to report their drivers violations to the school system. a new law would change that and it passed through a city council committee last night. some of the contractors appeared before the city council committee. they say it's hard to keep track of drivers in a bus when a citation was issued. but they agreed the problem need to be addressed. >> you don't ask for references? just like where was your last job? >> i am going to be straight. most of the times you know, they need them like now. >> reporter: now the bill moves ahead to a vote of the full city council which should happen sometime within the next few weeks. reporting live, sherrie johnson, abc2 news. >>> today governor o'malley will make an announcement dealing with affordable housing. details have not been released but last year around thi

the list of people -- of the really wealthy people and what they paid in taxes. it's a real education to go become and look at that. and i can't imagine what that education would look like today. if you had the same two pieces of information. >> host: one more question before we go to calls. you said you have to -- do you have to be a so-called egyptologist to read bills. >> guest: the taxes are the most demanding. it's not so much you have to have any special training. you just have to be patient. you have to read it and then try to follow it through. go back through it to see exactly who it applies to. some of these were actually quite obscure. some in terms of special interest provisions and a company incorporated in some state on such and such date, required us to then go to that state and very often go through whatever the filings were for them. one thing we ran across had to do with one company which issued 97 million in bonds or something like that. so, we had some of the database people who inquired, will you search this lexus, and see if anybody issued a bond in that amount. and su
, the need for poll workers training to be clear and voters to be a better educated. from my perspective those are systems of a system that is not designed for this kind of thing. we are asking pol workers to do more today than was ever contemplated when the idea of having a community poll workers was conceived. in my jurisdiction trying to serve 12 different languages across 4800 different polling places on election day is not a model that is sustainable. >> one last comment before i move on to don rehill, it is very valuable to have individuals like yourself who are both an election official but also a county clerk, engage in the discussion about the next generation of voting systems. for those of us to deal exclusively with voting systems we are a bit myopic at times about where we see government solutions going to. county clerks on the other hand, their offices are filled with applications that provide the kinds of services at a level and a cost point that their constituents are looking for beyond voting systems. i really like that perspective that you bring. as i said earlier many o
through 12 education and 450 million dollars extra for school, energy efficiency projects. steve malanga is here, the expert on state finances. i'm saying that, yeah, i've been harsh on california in the past, the formerly golden state. i say you've got to look more deeply at this budget it ain't as good as it looks and you say what? >> a couple of things, first of all, california has been essentially borrowing to increase its spending and they have about 23 billion dollars of debt that they have to pay back. it includes-- >> hold on, i've got to interrupt. they got 23 billion dollars. more debt than that, this is just budget deficit. stuart: this is fresh borrowing to cover the 26 billion deficit in the past and that 23 billion has to be repaid, but is not included in this budget. >> well, yes, actually it is included in the budget. in other words, a lot of the money from the tax increase and tax revenues currently are actually going to basically pay back borrowing against previous budgets. so and then the the second thing that's happening is california is not really reforming its spend

. i believe we can find more places to cut spending without shortchanging things like education, research, and technology, all of which are critical to our prosperity in the 21st century economy. spending cuts must be balanced with more reforms to our tax code. the wealthiest individuals and the biggest corporations should not be able to take advantage of loopholes and deductions that are not available for most americans. one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab they have racked up. if congress refuses to give united states the ability to pay its bills on time, consequences for the entire global economy could be catastrophic. the last of congress threatened this course of action, our entire economy suffered. i congratulate the newly sworn in members of congress. i look forward to working with the new congress and a bipartisan way. if we focus on the interests of our country above the interests of the party, am convinced we can cut spending and raise revenue in a manner that reduces our deficit and protect the middle class. and we can ste

it is that difficult to talk to people, educate people, and remind them that the two-party dynamic is within the party, the way the decisions are made and leaders are promoted. >> you look like you were about to jump in. >> my starting point is where people are. it may be that labor is a spent force and that civil-rights organizations are spent forces and the community-based organizations are narrow minded and too anxious to just get a foundation grant for government low-income tax credit to build five units of housing and it will not change the system, but that is where people are. for the last four years i have been working with the building insurance, the widest part of the labor movement. i have been working with them to try and get a young black and latino kids of color into the building trade so that they can become the green work force of the future. the building trade, conservative as they are, operates 1200 job training centers in the construction trade and is the second-largest mechanism outside the navy. guess what? they are actually in a coalition with youth bills, with many other organiza
the cuts in education and investments and innovation which i think are a false economy because they do reduce the possibility for growth rather than increase it. so i don't hear -- none of us is saying we are not going to talk about spending cuts. >> typically they are indicating now that they still want larger than any ever debt limit increase. >> i think that is a complete manifestation of the philosophy that is at work on the republican side. if you do not believe in the public role, if you do not heed the call of president washington that a political party shouldn't be at war with our own government, then you would disagree with what the republicans are doing. every day if you see the ryan budget that they deemed passed yesterday, passed on the floor yesterday, it practically directs that all of the things the public role plays a part in clean air, clean water, public safety, public education, public transportation, public housing, public health, medicaid, social security. so if you think there should be more spending than reaching the debt limit, if you do that a couple of times,
